The U.A.E. Branch of the Nautical Institute has been a supporter of The Angel Appeal since the idea was first discussed. As an international body of maritime professionals, their support has been vital in terms of knowledge and financial support. UAE Branch Chairman Captain Adil D. Moos FNI said "The Nautical Institute is an international representative body for Maritime professionals involved in the control of sea-going ships and our members are drawn from all sectors of the maritime world. The Flying Angel provides invaluable service to fellow seafarers while they are anchored in Fujairah. The Nautical Institute UAE Branch and all its members have steadfastly supported this noble cause since its inception in 2006 under the leadership of Rev Stephen Miller. We shall continue to support this noble cause which benefits our fellow brethren."
